Sedan Lake Evening

This is an 11" x 14" oil on linen covered board of a small lake
north of Sedan Kansas. It's the old municipal lake..I think there
are some pretty big creatures swimming just under the surface.
It's the location of a retreat that I try to make in the fall each
year but haven't been able to make it lately.

Cain's Ballroom

This is a 16"x 20" oil on canvas covered board painting
of an iconic location in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys
played here many years ago along with other famous bands
and entertainers. It's still going strong and has been renovated. Tulsa
has a long and strong tradition in the music industry.

Illinois River Above Tahlequah

This painting is a scene about 20 miles north of Tahlequah,
Oklahoma and a location utilized quite a bit by the students
of Northeastern State University for recreation in warm
weather. Also, in summer this river sees quite a few canoes
and kayaks passing through this area. This is oil on
canvas, 11" x 14".

Ellis Square, Savannah, Georgia.

Got out the water color set while on vacation
and painted this scene while sitting in Ellis Square in
Savannah, Georgia. Love those palmetto trees
along the streets there. This was painted on a
9" x 12" size piece of bristol board with gouache.

This small store and seafood place were alongside a marina
that specialized in deep sea fishing ventures. Located east of
Savannah on the highway to Tybee Island. Hot day that day.
This is 18" x 24" oil on board.

Buffalo on the Tallgrass Preserve in Oklahoma

This scene was painted after a photoshoot north of
Pawhuska, Oklahoma, the "entrance" to the tallgrass preserve, which
is a large land area that pretty much looks like Oklahoma prior
to statehood at the turn of the last century. Of course, there
have been changes such as fencing, etc..

Tybee Island Shell Hunt

This was painted after returning from Savannah, Georgia and Tybee Island
Beach. Saw a brother and sister digging for shells and thought it
would make a nice study.
